The King Brothers, entrepreneur siblings who parlayed an allegedly ill-gotten fortune into a long movie career, produced Monogram's The Unknown Guest. Victor Jory heads the cast as a young man who (like the producers?) is forced to live down an unsavory past. When his aunt and uncle are murdered, Jory becomes the prime suspect. Fleeing the law, Jory heads to a remote hunting lodge, where he falls in love with servant Pamela Blake. She tries to help him out of his jam, which is not resolved until the last possible moment. The impressive behind-the-scenes credits of The Unknown Guest includes screenwriter Phillip Yordan and musical composer Dmitri Tiomkin.
